Daily Programs at Wonderscope
Come join us each day for something fun with our daily programming. Each program is included in the cost of admission:
Circle Time – Tuesdays (10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.): Circle Time offers children and parents the opportunity to sing, learn, play and interact with other children in a structured manner around a central theme. Circle Time provides a way to enforce new concepts and ideas like seasons of the year, food, community helpers, letters and numbers, and emotions through interactive play. This half-hour long activity usually consists of songs, poems and educational-type games.
Music & Movement – Wednesdays (9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.): Music & Movement class focuses on developing both children’s and parents’ musical skills through singing, moving, listening and playing. This half-hour class consists of nursery rhymes; kid-friendly songs; playing various instruments like maracas, egg shakers, drums, tambourines and rhythm sticks; dancing; and listening to classical music. Through these various activities, children and parents learn to match pitch, practice steady beats, explore musical movement and strengthen their bond through music and play.
Art Time – Thursdays (10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.): Art Time provides an excellent opportunity for children to refine their fine motor skills through painting, cutting, gluing, coloring and taping. Through their time in the class, they also learn about shape, color, balance and other artistic concepts. Art projects are often themed around the time of year so that children can proudly display their art projects at home.
Story Time – Fridays (10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.): Story Time offers guests the opportunity to join in for a read-aloud book and to make a craft related to the story. Stories are often themed around the time of year. Through Story Time, children practice listening, absorbing and analyzing new information, making predictions and deductions, and following plot. Afterwards, the craft helps them remember the story as well as practice their fine motor skills.
Obstacle Course – Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays (3 p.m.): A museum favorite, the obstacle course gives children the opportunity to test their physical skills (speed, balance and agility) and follow directions in a timed course which varies in difficulty from week to week. Children also practice supporting their friends, siblings and other museum guests by cheering for all the competitors.
Remember we are closed on Mondays!
